Leslie Patterson-Marx's etching of the bird silhouette inspired this collaboration.
I wrote my script on the straight lines of the etching. With colored pencils I drew the egg and the symbols of the 4 elements on the border surrounding the etching, and the ribbon.

We really hope you come in to try your hand at monoprinting and drawing - it is very fulfilling, and we'll be there to assist.
NOTE: If you cannot make it to the printing day, May 10 and only want to draw on the 17th and 24th, do bring paper! the better the paper, the better results.
This piece is also a collaboration with lots of drawing on Leslie's silkscreen.

The thing I like about collaborating is that there is a place to start from, instead of facing the empty white sheet of paper.
In this one, I drew a bit on Lesley's bees, and surrounded them with drawn circles and honey comb. I tore out a section at the upper left then glued the whole piece over a drawing I had started. Embellished with Hydrangea and Forget-Me-Not flowers.
